Churchill Community College is a dynamic, exciting place to work with many opportunities available for staff and students.

Churchill was inspected by Ofsted in 2019 as a ‘good’ school; previously the school had been judged ‘outstanding’, and whilst the judgement of ‘good’ was very fair we have the aspiration of ‘excellence in all we do’ and need the successful applicant to embrace this philosophy.

Churchill is very much a community school, and whilst the community we serve is enormously proud and supportive of the school, a significant proportion of our students come from low income or deprived households, with more than 40% of our cohort eligible for the Pupil Premium. Even before Ofsted began emphasising the importance of long-term learning and cultural capital we had begun the process of reviewing and developing our Key Stage 3 curriculum in order to put greater emphasis on them, something you will see reflected in our 2019 Ofsted report. Cultural and curricular changes take time to work through the system, however, and you will see this reflected in the dip in our academic outcomes in 2018 and 2019 following the introduction of the reformed 9-1 GCSEs. Had students had the opportunity to sit exams in either 2020 or 2021, we are confident that we would have seen outcomes improve significantly, and we are looking forward to seeing this publicly validate when we receive our exam results in 2022.

We also lead the ‘The Great North Maths Hub’ for the North of England alongside the North Tyneside Learning Trust. We are one of two lead schools for the Northumbria University PE SCITT and work closely on ITT provision with Durham University, Sunderland and Newcastle too; as well as supporting Schools Direct provision. This work is all evidence of our continuing commitment to high quality professional development for those who work in education.
